    Hello,
    I can't find an answer in the various threads. I don't want to modify NAND in any way, I just want to dump it. Is it possible?
    Thanks

    Not without kernel access. It's needed to access NAND in any way.

    If you know anyone with an Arm9loaderhax 3ds, you are able to inject a modified save into a DSIware title and put it on your 3ds to dump the nand but aside from that, no you cannot.

    Thanks to both.
    I'd like to install A9LH on my N3DSXL on which I have a NNID with a good number of legit games. But I don't want to redownload everything and saving/restoring all the saves with JKSM (it's a lenghty process, as you have to start the game in order for it to create the save data and only then you can overwrite it). Moreover, I don't think you can save NAND data (activity log, for example) for the same reason you can't dump the NAND.
    I have an O3DS already A9LHed with no NNID, but unluckily you can't system transfer from N3DS to O3DS (this way I could transfer the data from my N3DSXL to O3DS, dump the NAND, format it, buying Fieldrunners, etc - with a bit of transfers back and forth I could restore my N3DSXL to it's original state, but alas!)

    Thanks anyway

    You could get a hardmod for your n3DS and downgrade that way.

    Correct you would need to hardmod, make a dump of nand. Call it emunand_original.bin, install arm9, flash, etc.
